He is board-certified in general psychiatry and as a certified physician executive. He also holds a master’s in business administration from Baruch College.
Most recently Miller was the chief medical officer and chair of psychiatry and the residency program at North General Hospital in New York.

We provide cutting edge mental health treatment in a caring environment. I am very excited to be a part of this team,” said Miller, who began his work at Providence in January.
